Short in the emission system wiring is my first guess. Will the fuse blow when you turn the key or do you have to drive it for a little before it blows.

about 5 times while driving, once right after starting. had a remote stat kit put in by best buy 3 weeks ago.

Did it start doing this after the remote start was installed?

Well I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 4x4 5.7L Hemi that keeps blowing fuse 23. I have replaced the original battery which was 13 years old, then took it to the dealer for a diagnostics, well they wanted $400 to tell me I needed a new PCM? Well they reduced the charge to $175. Bought a refurbished pcm, plug and play model programmed to my vin number, for $1100 less than the dealer wanted, had it installed by another garage then 36 hours later the damn fuse 23 blows again, truck will not start. Well I have fuses, change fuse truck starts? Any suggestions as to what it could be? Going to replace the 15 amp fuse that keeps blowing with a 60 or 80 amp fuse and see where the sparks start flying. Got about $1000 in it already. Only 58K miles on her, great for a 12 year old truck. GOT TO FIGURE THIS OUT. HELP ANYONE HAVE THIS HAPPEN BEFORE???
